Electronics-Themed Comics

July 1952 Radio-Electronics

July 1952 Radio-Electronics Cover - RF Cafe[Table of Contents]

Wax nostalgic about and learn from the history of early electronics. See articles from Radio-Electronics, published 1930-1988. All copyrights hereby acknowledged.

As I often do on Fridays, I searched through my collection of vintage electronics magazines for some tech-themed comics. This group of five appeared in the July 1952 issue of Radio-Electronics. A couple of these were suggested by the magazine's readers, and staff artists turn the ideas into drawings. The Standing Waves comics gets my vote for the best of the lot for cleverness. Page 102's comic could be (almost) a depiction of a contemporary in-home entertainment center, given the size of televisions today. For some reason I'm not "getting" the gag in the page 113 comic, which features a buxom woman with big hair doing a juggling act on TV.

RF Cafe began life in 1996 as "RF Tools" in an AOL screen name web space totaling 2 MB. Its primary purpose was to provide me with ready access to commonly needed formulas and reference material while performing my work as an RF system and circuit design engineer. The World Wide Web (Internet) was largely an unknown entity at the time and bandwidth was a scarce commodity. Dial-up modems blazed along at 14.4 kbps while tying up your telephone line, and a nice lady's voice announced "You've Got Mail" when a new message arrived...
